The highly touted freshmen reversed things, with Leaf feeding Ball for a dunk before Leaf scored inside. The Bruins had 21 assists.Ive never played with this much talent around me before, Leaf said. It takes adjusting to get used to, but were starting to get used to our roles.Leaf kept up the theatrics with another dunk before finishing off the 16-8 run with a two-handed dunk on Balls alley-oop pass that extended UCLAs lead to 58-45.We wanted to give it to them inside a little bit, Leaf said. We really wanted to make our presence around the basket and we did that.Consecutive baskets by Ball and a 3-pointer by Leaf pushed the Bruins lead to 68-52.The Toreros couldnt defend UCLAs surge. Bailey and Neubauer did all of San Diegos second-half scoring until Olin Carter III scored eight straight points with 6:13 to go.Our kids really competed, but against an explosive team like UCLA, we gave up so much size, second-year San Diego coach Lamont Smith said.
